Embracing Uncertainty

One day Jesus was approached by a wanna-be-follower and the following interaction took place.

19 Then one of the teachers of religious law said to him, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.”20 But Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place even to lay his head.”

In other words, Jesus was saying: Dude, I'm not even sure where I'm staying tonight. Are you sure you want to follow me?

This reminds of of something that we rarely talk about: Living by faith and circumstantial uncertainty go hand in hand.

That's why this coming Sunday at Hub City we're going to talk about embracing uncertainty. 

The problem for all of us is we want certainty. We orchestrate every part of our lives to maximize certainty. But certainty and living by faith are polar-opposites. 

We'll see you Sunday at Hub City. 9 or 10:30, at Spartan 16 Movie Theater.
